Dear Rougned:

I want to apologize.

You were the worst player in baseball for the last two seasons and I thought you were never going to be worth a damn.

For that, I am sorry.

You were lost. For most of two seasons, you swung at every single pitch that was thrown at you, whether it was a strike or not. Once you swung at a bird flying by.

You said that was your approach and you weren’t going to change it. So, in response, I said you were a worthless piece of baseball player.

While I was right at the time, I would like to say I am sorry for assuming you would always be that bad.

Somewhere, pride kicked in and ego left. And you decided you would change your approach.

And now you have gone from the worst hitter in baseball to one of the best. Like top ten best. Like jaw dropping best.

It’s pretty remarkable what you have done. From all accounts, you have worked hard. Really hard.

And it shows.

So, once again, I would like to apologize for doubting you. And I would like to point out that what you have done these last eight weeks is nothing short of remarkable.

I am nothing more than an avid fan who learned a great lesson in humility.

I was wrong. I apologize. I hope you will forgive me.

Kevin Sutton.

P.S. Shave the beard.
